Historic droughts, the fastest growing populations in the country, and unsettled law have combined to create a perfect legal storm for landowner water rights in Texas. Water quantity, water pollution, upstream users, and offers to buy or lease water rights, as well as regulation by local governments, are issues many owners of rural land face today or will in the very near future. Braun & Gresham helps landowners understand their rights and create strategies to protect themselves now.

“Braun had the expertise to make it all happen. They provided the insight, integrity, and respect necessary to engage successfully with all entities involved. They were very fair-minded and creative with their thinking – they just wouldnt except ‘no’ for an answer.”
